What's the Matter with this Picture?

What's the matter with this picture? Or should I say this kid? No one should be that happy to be at the dentist but she was. So excited to be a big girl getting a check up and looking forward to the toy drawer. What nurse thought of that for doctors and dentists deserves a reward. Genius.

Perfectly clean teeth despite the fact that we have been working our way through lots of popsicles and frozen yogurt this summer. The gals at the dentist offices are always in shock. "What, you have another little one? Don't you have grown kids." Yes and yes! Life is good like that. People are funny. I had a kid in my 40's so what's so shocking about that? I am sure I am not the first. Or the last.

Well she is a true beauty. What lovely teeth.

I had my children at 19 and 23 - and I got the opposite: every person I ever met casually thought I was their sister, or maybe babysitter.

I would laugh and say "But LOOK at them, they look exactly like me!"

Funny I was such a young Mom I thought I would be a young grandma.....but not sure I will ever be one now, and I am no longer is weird, isn't it?

Give your sweet little one a big hug from me and just love her to pieces. You are blessed and lucky.

Yea for Q ! My Aunt had a baby at 46. She had three other kids that were grown, and married, and out of the house. Talk about a shocker!!!

It is very trendy to have a baby at a more mature age. I think having a baby when you are not a kid, yourself, makes for better parenting.

I had my kids at a very young age, but my daughters waited until they were out of college and started their careers. Then, they were ready to be stay at home moms.

such a cutie. glad to hear of the good dentist report. ( :

Mary Clark said...

Ah, glad she likes the dentist! My kids were born when I was 43 and 46 and I'm think we're the bomb-diggity-est family around!!! We're having fun what else matters?! And I know y'all are to.

Yeah for Q.! I was good at the dentist when I was that age, my dentist was a wonderful kind gentle one. My grandma had my mom when she was 42. Have a cousin who had her 6th at 41 1/2. Friend had her 2nd at 44. Years ago a neighbor had her 3rd at 50! Yes, 50, one for the books. Babies are a gift from God. Still amazed how some people don't get that. xo

It's so great that she likes the dentist! My sister is taking my 3 year old nephew to the dentist soon and is getting worried that he might not do too well. But hopefully he will do as well as your little girl!

I haven't been able to comment much lately. Your little girl is a cutie. Tell her congratulations on a good dental checkup. So sorry about your chickens. You loved having them. It made me sad that you had to give them up. always some stinker in the neighborhood. I had one take me to the township over having a pre-school 6 hours a week in my home. She lost. Don' give up on blogging. Everyone goes through bumps. (((((HUGS)))))

And what a treasure she is! All of your girls are beautiful, and their smiles show they are also sweet...must be a family trait:>)

Nonnie said...

Awwww. So cute, cute, cute. As long as she enjoys going to the dentist and taking care of those teeth, she will do just fine. Sweet smile!

It's Just Dottie said...

I am the oldest of nine children, My last sister was born seven days after I had my first child. My mother was 48.
Smiles, Dottie

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

She's adorable...

And you know that people are always amazed that anyone does anything that slightly differs from their world...

It's just life. And having more children after a break isn't that unusual at all.


Michelle said...

I went to the dentist today too But mine wasn't a happy visit. They hit two nerves in my cheek while numbing me. Now the whole right side of my face hurts. Glad to hear she had a great visit.

Tammy ~ Country Girl at Home ~ said...

That's great. I don't like the dentist at all...well I like the gas and that's it. lol!

Yes, I kind of get the same thing with the kids. My kids are 10 and 9 years apart. I was 35 when Joy was born and 47 when we brought Luke home. :)

Have a great 4th!

NanaDiana said...

LOL Ny kids were 10 years apart- kind of unusual for then...but not so much anymore. What a blessing to have that BIG GIRL get her dental appt. over with and still be smiling- xo Diana

Hi Elaine,
I'm cruising by compliments of Brenda's blog (Cozy little house). I love your blog.
You've got great ideas on cooking and organization that me as a single mom can use.

Have a terrific 4th.

Viola over at Along a widowed road.

I'm gonna start to follow your blog.

Bless her little heart! She does not know about cavities and "the dentist's drill" and as long as she continues with good oral hygiene and her regular check ups she will always continue to have that sweet smile on her face. God's blessings can come at any age. It was Sara in the Old Testament who God blessed with a child when she was way past her child-bearing years. You were blessed and I know that you believe that too.
Have a happy and safe 4th.
As always, Susanne ♥

:D She's too cute. I bet she acts much older than most kids her age with her older sisters! She probably wants to do everything they do.

Enjoy the Fourth!
